JoJo Siwa‘s viral TikTok that shouted Full house star Candace Cameron Bure to be the one “ruddest celebrity” she’s ever met made waves across the internet over the past week – even prompting the 46-year-old actress to give her side of the story.
Since then have Dancing mothers alum has explained his reasoning for crowning Bure as rude. “You know, I had a rough experience when I was little,” the 19-year-old YouTube star said in a video obtained by Page six. “I was 11 and I was a big, big fan and I wanted to take a picture with her and it wasn’t a good time for her.”
“I would say just because I had a bad experience doesn’t mean she’s a horrible person,” she added. “I think it was just an inconvenient time for her and little 11-year-old me was just so excited and so excited, but that doesn’t mean she’s the worst person ever. It was just a rough experience for me.”
Cages previously disclosed in her own video that she personally contacted Siwa to chat after watching TikTok. “[Siwa] said ‘I met you at Fuller House premiere and I was 11 years old and we were all on the red carpet. I had come up to you and said “Can I have a picture with you?” and you told me “Not right now.” And then you kept doing what you were doing, taking pictures with other people on the red carpet,” Bure recalled.
“The lesson we can learn is to be aware that no matter how many followers you have, even a 10 second trending TikTok video can do harm because our words matter and our actions matter… There is no drama. It’s the tea,” she concluded.
